Social media has made it seem like wanting to feel special is wrong. Who wants to walk this earth and feel like nothing they did mattered to anyone else? Everyone wants to feel special, connected to someone, important to someone or like they can’t be lived without. We are wired that way from conception.
We are supposed to love and be loved. All else is the damage created by fear. Giving our hearts is our purpose and the reason we do everything we do. And, that desire mixed with fear is what leads us to hear what we want to hear and see what we want to see.
It doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you. You are human. Only God can love people unconditionally. Our conditions are the thing that helps others grow as they step out of their selfishness to rise up and meet your need to feel special. And, when they make you feel as if your way of seeing the world is worth their growth, then you bloom and you are able to spread that love to others who need it.
That is the point. Anything else is what is necessary to get you to the point.
